so in the next couple of years I will be as poor as a church mouse because we plan to build a house and my husband will also be working just part time in order to finish his studies. Which means major change in our budget. And this means – no more shopping except for the absolute necessary, ya know – socks and underwear and stuff. But I am in the need of constant change in my wardrobe. And this blog will have to assist me in not getting sick with the same clothes over and over and over again.
As you can see from the post title – I will try to make this into a series of posts.
Here we have two mug shots. Same dress – two ways (this sounds tired…but oh well). And there you have it – one sporty and one girly outfit involving accessory change and that’s it.
And a close up of the shoes, since you cannot really see properly in the pictures above. Swedish Hasbeens, I got for a third of the original price (score!) back in May. I loooove them. I can never wear peep toes, because the press on my toes which in order gives me blisters and a world of pain. These, however, do not!
And my beloved Converse with Marimekko print, which you’ve already seen here:
And a bonus detail shot of the dress and a bag.
and some more mug shots with the bad lighting.
Outfit 1: dress – H&M, sneakers – Converse, clutch – Asos
Outfit 2: dress – H&M, clogs – Swedish Hasbeens, bag – Zara
A couple of outfits I created. A bit of a play on animal print trend and jeans overalls.
Dunno if I would wear the one with leopard pants. As I wrote some time before, I don’t think that I would be able to pull of pants like that…probably would end up lookin like I am sporting pajamas…But the one with jeans overalls…with melissa pink shoes…Would be purfect.
Even though the weather is still spoiling us with warmth and sun, I just need to start wearing Autumn clothes. I hate being in between – either Summer or Autumn.
Anyway. I stocked up on colourful tights from asos and this is the second outing for these particular ones.
Since it was too warm for booties and I really really wanted to wear coloured tights, I went for pairing them with sandals. I don’t remember ever wearing tights together with sandals…to me it always seemed such a violation of rules of good taste… I sure am glad I started reading fashion blogs. I learned to appreciate a lot of things I somehow could not accept before.
Outfit: top – Zara, skirt – s.Oliver, tights – ASOS, sandals – Clarks, coat – Etam, scarf – Soaked in Luxury, bag – Mango, butterfly pendant – from mom.
The outfit began with tights and other parts just came together instantly. But they were all dark. I needed something bright. I think the result turned out pretty well – yellow works great and I was really feeling the oufit.
And I think my photographer is really starting to get a grip on what kind of pictures I want to have.
And here is the full outfit. The only thing that was lacking IMHO (and according to my husband as well) – some shoe clips to brighten up the lower part of the whole outfit. I discovered some really nice examples, but I gave oath to myself not buy anything anymore at least until Christmas. But maybe I’ll do the post on them.
The scarf has a story behind it. I bought it at the Copenhagen airport while waiting for the transfer and I was really in love with it. I wore it with everything, everywhere. But then I went to Limp Bizkit concert and lost the scarf… I was really upset, but I was lucky to travel again through Copenhagen a couple of weeks later and they still had a couple left! I had a short transfer so I had to run to the store…Good thing it was on my way 😀
And here are some Autumn colours from our littlo town.
Enjoy the Autumn!
